Music: AHAFAS – A.C.A.B.

Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if that noisy refrigerator of yours decided to start making experimental music? I believe AHAFAS has come up with the answer that question. This is your icebox unleashing all of its internal angst for having to put up with your rotting vegetables, cans of cheap beer, and that jar of pickled vegetables you just can’t seem to get rid of. Do the right thing, and listen up…and switch out the box of baking soda every once in a while, you heathen.

Podcast: Experimental Portland #005

Music: Rumination – playn jazz music

I know zero about this recording. Less than that actually. This could be a someone playing a recording of a Cecil Taylor LP through their MacBook microphone for all I know.

What I do know for sure is that I love it. 12 minutes of desiccated jazz being held together by pure intestinal fortitude? Yes, yes, and yes again. I’ve sent them a message through their Bandcamp page to either learn more or to be made fun of for not recognizing the source material they used. Either way, I’m wholly satisfied.
